Default Flatty Friday: Mart keeps plugging away on that old motor.

Hello. In this video I tackle the final jobs before I could call the block ready for reassembly. I trim the liners down to match the reliefs, do a mediocre job on the ports and give the block a final clean and wash down. Thanks very much for following along. Stick with me, there's plenty more to come.

If you enjoy the videos please click like, leave a comment and give me a sub. It helps bump my stuff up in YouTube's algorithms. Reply here too. It all helps.

Cheers!

Mart.

Friday coffee with Mart and the crusty engine. Great way to end the week. Any plans on the boo boo? Didn't look that bad but can't really tell from the pics.

Thanks done4. My method of dealing with the boo boo will be to cross my fingers and pretend it didn't happen. It might be ok. if it isn't I'll worry about it then. There are some other things that might not be ok so lets just see how it goes.

Well done once again,Mart. Looking forward to future installments! That little boo-boo looks to be small enough the fire ring will be able to seal just fine. Sure is irritating though,isn't it?
